Piers Morgan hit a nerve with Kelsey Grammer. The CNN host was supposed to interview the Boss star, 57, on his Wednesday show when he claims that the actor “ran out”; of the building.
Morgan, 47, explained the incident in a series of tweets, the first reading: “Kelsey Grammer was supposed to be on my show now but ran out of the building. Strange.”;
The host adds, “So, Kelsey Grammer saw a photo of his ex wife Camille in the open to our show and legged it. Extraordinary. Never had this happen before.”; Grammer had a messy divorce with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille, 44.
The tweets continue, with even X Factor host Simon Cowell chiming in. They read:
“I had a very friendly chat with Kelsey backstage, He said he was really looking forward to the interview. Weird.”;
“I suspect Kelsey was watching X Factor in the green room and suddenly felt nauseous RT @SimonCowell: @piersmorgan I know how he feels.”;
“Yes please RT @SimonCowell: @piersmorgan if he was watching x factor he wouldn’t have done a runner. Do you want me to call him for you?”;
“I like Kelsey Grammer personally, but this was a shockingly unprofessional thing to do. I wasn’t even going to mention his ex-wife!”;
Meanwhile, the Frasier star’s rep issued a statement to ETonline: “Piers needs to take responsibility for what he did to Kelsey. It’s called accountability.”;
Grammer has been quite open to discuss his ex in the past. The actor is now married to 29-year-old Kayte Walsh, who is the mother of his newborn daughter Faith.
